Abstract Painting Adventure
The perfect way to start your journey – learning about colour, composition and create with paint!
Designed for the non-artist, our goal is to expose you to new creative experiences and teach you the basic skills that will enable you to continue on your creative journey.
Adventurers will go home with a custom abstract painting, a 10"x10" as well as gesture drawings and paint worksheets. More importantly we hope you leave with wonderful memories and a continued desire to create!
For this 1 Day Adventure, you will create a beautiful 10” x 10” abstract painting in the style of Kate Taylor.
We'll start our day with a welcome – having a mimosa and getting to know your fellow Adventurers as we do a few creativity warm-up exercises. Our guided workshops will provide you with the direction you need to be successful. You will be encouraged to break out of your comfort zone, accept serendipity and build creative skills such as colour theory and composition.
Celebrate your creative achievements! These 1 Day Adventures are designed to give you a taste of a new art form. We hope you continue your creative journey as you take home your new masterpiece and treasured memories.

Artbarn School is located in midtown Toronto, along the Eglinton Way (Eglinton Avenue West at Oriole Park). In 2005, Mary Thelander, Frith Bail and Linda McMaster envisioned a welcoming not-for-profit community art school. Since then, under Linda’s leadership, Artbarn has inspired hundreds of budding artists of all ages. We hope this vision will inspire us all!
Give Yourself the Day!
Before heading to your adventure, we encourage you to give yourself the day – we will not force you to pocket your cell phones (you will want to take pictures of your pieces and experience); however, one of the best ways to get the most from your adventure is to immerse yourself in the activity.
What to Wear
Be prepared to get messy! As you can imagine – these adventures are all about the fashion…not! We will get messy – that is the point. We encourage you to dig in the bottom of your closet for some old T-shirts and wear some comfortable clothes that you don’t need to worry about.. We do have aprons available but not having to worry about your clothing is very freeing!
